Brownsville, New York

According to an unnamed eyewitness, the 15-year-old and the 25-year-old first began arguing in a laundromat before making their way out to the Brownsville street were the incident erupted into bloodshed.

“They [were] fighting like crazy. They ran out the laundromat, there was money flying everywhere, a watch was dropped on the floor [and] the watch was crushed up, $20’s all in the air.’’

The 18-year-old bystander “had a hole in his back,’’ the man stated.

“He was just going to the store and got caught up in all of that.”

“It looked like a war up in there,” the eyewitness added.

The Brooklyn teen and the two men were all transported to Brookdale Hospital in Brownsville for medical treatment.

The 15-year-old was pronounced dead upon arrival while the other two men have been listed in stable condition.

Police have not released the names of the three as the 15-year-old’s family needs to be notified. No weapons were said to be recovered at the scene of the incident that has since been taped off my police.

The NYPD is currently conducting a full investigation into the stabbings as they look to find a suspect.
